The Works Progress Administration (WPA) carried out pavement repair and other, unspecified improvements to a segment of Rhode Island Avenue NE, from Twelfth Street to Sixteenth Street, in 1935-36.
The work was part of the $949,496 WPA allotment for DC roadwork for fiscal year 1936.
This WPA roadwork is probably not discernible today due to subsequent road maintenance, repairs, or alterations.
